A common problem in our industry today is the lack of full-time employment available for passionate and talented young people. Read this article by the Guardian for a fair analysis of the problems young conservationists face today. The truth is, it is a very competitive market and one that can be very hard to penetrate. It seems that more people want to help conservation efforts than the conservation industry wants people to help and this can be very frustrating for passionate young people.
If you are struggling to find a full-time job in conservation, the best advice we can give you is to develop a valuable skill that will make you a useful asset in the eyes of an employer. Perhaps this means taking courses and gaining qualifications in things seemingly entirely unrelated to conservation such as marketing, videography, illustration or even business skills such as accounting, HR and sales. What would make you even more useful to employers is a few years of industry experience in these sectors before applying to full-time conservation jobs in Asia or elsewhere.
In fact, on our team at Fuze Ecoteer, along with our purebred conservationists, we have full-time staff who used to be lawyers, salesmen, accountants and even actors! The point is that you do not have to work through the “conventional” route to becoming a paid conservationist. There are many avenues you can take to end up at your desired conservation job, and in fact, what is lacking in the industry is not passionate people but skilled people.
